Welcome to the Central Arizona DX Association

Welcome to the CADXA Web SiteThe Central Arizona DX Association (CADXA), an ARRL-affiliated club, is a group of Amateur Radio operators, located primarily in the Phoenix, Arizona area, who share a passion for DXing.  The club, founded in 1974, maintains a strong presence in the worldwide DX community.  Many members of the CADXA are leaders and top performers in the world of DXing, contesting and DXpeditions.

Anyone with an interest in Ham Radio, DXing or contesting is welcomed to join us at our regular monthly general meetings.  Our meetings consist of a quality presentation on a radio-related topic and are an excellent opportunity to meet with like-minded folks to discuss current events and make new friends.

October 2nd 2014 CADXA Meeting

 I don't know about you, but I got home, took my 4 Element SteppIR down, bent the elements, and went to bed... What I found in the morning when I awoke was that the elements had all returned back to their original position.  Well.. I guess that's what happens with fiberglass!!!

But, all comedy aside, WHAT A GREAT TOPIC on bent elements and the impact on traditional antennas from Chip Margelli (K7JA).

If you decide to try some of these new geometries, drop us an email and let us know your results, I'm sure the whole CADXA club would like to know about this!!

Our next meeting will be on November 6th at which time we'll have our annual equipment auction.  Bring all your stuff and lets make this year an even bigger success than last year!!
